Fishing Report for July 3, 2019

Wednesday, July 3 2019

We fished Thrasher exclusively this week, and had three outstanding trips, one good one, and one somewhat mediocre. Fishing the morning low tide change proved to be most productive, the afternoon high tide change trip had very little bait, and thus fewer fish showing. The Chinook were in depths from 120 to 250 feet, with downrigger depths from 120 to 135 feet. There are lots of 10 to 12 pound fish in the area mixed with 6 to 7 pounders, and some undersized, also. Evil Eye or Killy Magee spoons in the 3 inch model are lures of choice.

Coho are scarce, we’re picking up one per trip, and the majority of these are wild fish and cannot be retained. They are getting to be nice size now, 4 to 5 pounds. 

The Coho are sometimes found shallower, 65 to 85 feet.

Prawning has recovered and is quite good. Expect 75 per trap, with the majority being good sized.

Good fishing!
